To where have all the black-footed ferrets disappeared? The black-footed ferrets have been endangered since 1967 in the southwestern corner of North Dakota due to loss of habitat and a depletion of their prime food source. First of all, the prairie dogs and the other animals that lived in their homes were the ferrets prime source of food. Secondly, the ferrets, like many other animals, used the prairie dogs’ burrows as homes. Last, the farmers and ranchers whose cattle land has been invaded by the prairie dogs are eradicating them.

As well as most small animals, black-footed ferrets are prey.
